Traumatic brain injuries are usually put into two different classifications. An open head injury occurs when an object enters the skull, causing damage to specific parts of the brain. The symptoms and consequences of these penetrating injuries vary based on which parts of the brain are affected. A closed head injury occurs when you hit your head, but the skull is not broken. These injuries are often more difficult to detect but can still cause serious damage.
There are also two types of brain damage that can occur. Primary damage is what happens as a result of the initial impact. These injuries can include contusions, damage to blood vessels and axonal shearing. Secondary damage occurs in the hours and days following the initial trauma and can lead to brain damage or death.
